    RYA/Sailing Courses

Intro

The centre boasts two superb Salona yachts (37/38ft). These are ideal for learning, improving and gaining advanced qualifications for sailing. All cruises have a RYA Cruising Instructor/Yachtmaster Instructor on board to ensure your safety. Unlike many other cruising providers, we have no hidden costs. Just bring your own sleeping bag and enjoy a sense of freedom as you live aboard the yacht and berth somewhere different each night.

Own Boat Tuition - our staff are available to join you on your own yacht or motor cruiser for personal tuition. Their instruction will allow you and your crew to gain experience and new skills as you train together. Please call for more information.

Special Offer 5 for 4 Organise a group of 5 on any cruising course and all go for the price of 4! All 5 places must be booked in a single transaction.
